French Market Tote

from While they Play
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : French Market Tote
French Market Tote
French Market Tote
French Market Tote

Pattern Description:

The French Market Tote is the prettiest accessory you'll need this spring and summer.

Perfect as a carry-all for the beach, a book bag for school or of course a market bag! Line with your favorite reusable market bag and you'll keep your pretty tote free from stains and spills when placing in fresh flowers or produce from your local Farmer's Market.

The French Market Tote has generous dimensions to accommodate anything you'll need to bring home from a busy day of shopping. Measures 13.5" x 11.5" x 5"

Crochet in pure Cotton or Linen for a lightweight but sturdy and easy-care tote.

NOTE: For heavier items, I would suggest making TWO tote bottoms and sandwiching a piece of cardboard or plastic between the two pieces before crocheting your border.

Requires approx. 250 yrds of Worsted weight yarn and an "H" (5mm) Hook.

You'll also need two straps OR one very long strap for sewing to the sides of the tote. Your choice!

Pattern is both written and charted (for front and back pieces of tote)

Suggested yarn:

250 yards of Worsted weight
